Most of you who know me know I have been asking for many years now “How Do We Get The Younger People Involved In This Hobby”. Usually when I bring it up I get the shrug of the shoulders and that’s about it.
Well the RGSB is at it again. If you haven’t already seen it, check out the video that I posted back on November 3. This time for the month of December they have YOTA. If your under 26 your invited (licensed or not) to a demonstration on amateur radio and to try and make contacts.
I think this is an excellent idea and one that should be tried around VE7 land or the rest of the country for that fact. I will discuss this idea with the membership shortly to see if we can establish something around here.
Leave a comment about this if you wish.
Below is the post about the event.
YOTA Month December 2015
This December, 14 participants around the UK will activate G*15YOTA, all operators are youngsters under the age of 26 and some will be trying amateur radio for the first time
The mix of participants is diverse; from schools, to universities and local clubs.
